The Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions. The Red Dot Label is one of the most prestigious marks of design quality globally.According to the Red Dot Award website, “Every year, the Red Dot Award: Product Design sets out to find the year’s best products. The products selected by the Red Dot Jury to win an award may be aesthetically appealing, functional, smart or innovative, but what they all have in common is their outstanding design.”When we developed the Hedgehog Dryer series, we initially researched, purchased and tested the existing shoe dryers on the market and discovered that the industry had not advanced in several decades. Low air flow and a clunky design were the norm, with limited functionality. It seemed ironic to us that Scandinavian families, which value product design as well as functionality, had such widespread use of these antiquated dryer products.
“We didn't want to make a product that was a little bit better than the other dryers out there,” Hedgehog founder Bjørn Holte said. “We wanted to create the best shoe dryer in the world.” Bjørn worked with engineers and industrial designers to create a new product series with improved functionality that also looked great. More powerful technology, multiple time settings, multiple heat options, multiple fan speeds, materials to enhance safety, and increased capacity are a few of the key features that set Hedgehog apart.Our team was honored and excited to learn this spring that the Hedgehog Dryer series won a Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022 in the category of Innovative Products. As noted by the Red Dot Award jury, "The Hedgehog Dryer offers sophisticated functionality for drying shoes, boots and gloves and offers enhanced user safety."Team Hedgehog is proud of our award-winning dryer series and is pleased and privileged to be a Red Dot Award winner.
